New Bedford is located in one of the southern most portions of Massachusetts. It is a short drive from the inland towns of Fall River, Somerset, Attleboro, and Taunton and is located almost 60 miles due south of Boston. Among its may claims to fame, New Bedford helped to inspire a great literary masterpiece: Herman Melville’s Novel, “Moby Dick” was inspired by the author’s experiences on a trip that started at the New Bedford Port in 1841.
First settled in 1640, New Bedford was not incorporated until 1787. The first post office was established in New Bedford on June 12, 1792 and New Bedford’s first newspaper, The Medley, began in 1792. In 1847, when New Bedford was re-incorporated as a city, the citizens elected the city’s first mayor: Abraham Hathaway Howland.
